Will the two Teamster appointed board members (Doug Carty and Harry Wilson) be at the meeting to answer questions and discuss the financial PLANS for YRCW's future? Aren't these board members supposed to be looking out for the Teamster YRCW employees?

Is this proposal the final offer? Could the 2-man committee members look at the proposal and say "NO WAY" to any new concessions and agree to ONLY take back to their members an extension of the current MOU? Remember the rumor we heard out of a recent Local 63 meeting that the union must agree to the list of company demands or the company will file for bankruptcy protection on December 23.

Will Hoffa and Hall, and all the regional freight directors be at the meeting to answer question? EVERY single Teamsters Union official involved in these negotiations should be held accountable to the 2-man committee members!

What about representatives from the lending institutions? Will they be there to answer questions? Who's looking out for YRCW Teamster members when it comes to negotiating with the banks?

NO rubber stamping of the what appears to be final offer either. All questions from the 2-man committee members should be answered before a vote is taken on whether to take it to the members for a vote. I know it's hard to "negotiate" with a gun held to their heads (threat of a Dec. 23 bankruptcy), but no union official involved should get off the hook. It's up to the 2-man committee members to draw a line in the sand on Friday! Let's hope they do!

I still do not understand where the idea that these two appointed board members report to the Teamsters they do not, The IBT was given the opportunity to nominate 2 members, Once nominated the rest of the board would have to voted to approve them. The turn around specialist look to have been a good idea at the time but it now appears he's only lining his pockets,

That's all that board members do line their pockets, the heck with everyone else...
 
Harry Wilson ??? really he has made like $5 million off this deal so far and he's like Hoffa's good buddy ?? , as for Doug Carty don't know much about him , any isn't 2 guys from each Local suppose to be there too ?? got a bad feeling about this meeting think it's going be a hoze deal for us and a good old boy deal for them & Harry Wilson !!!!
 
" It's up to the 2-man committee members to draw a line in the sand on Friday! Let's hope they do!

It was up to the MEMBERSHIP to tell them not to renegotiate, that should have been the line. But apparently the membership wanted to renegotiate. So much for drawing a line. IF TNFINC said no to a new deal, who is Tyson Johnson to instruct the locals to take their members temperature on the idea? He should resign or be fired. He and hoffa have watched the destruction of Freight. 50,000 jobs here alone in the last 7 years. Hoffa should leave also. I would say that they should be ashamed, but I know that is too much to ask.
 
key word is destruction of 50,000 FREIGHT JOBS , kinda makes you wonder IF the union wants to get OUT of the trucking freight companies ?? and just get into other type of industry's ???? that are NOT going BROKE all the time ????? something to think about if you look at the history of union freight companies ????

Yeah! Just ask KK to tell you the story about trying to organize Conway in the Atlanta area many years ago! While Teamster members were busy carrying then Teamster president Jackie Presser into the 1986 convention on a sedan chair, the execs at Conway were busy dismantling CF, piece by piece! Let's not even talk about the botched attempt at organizing American Freight! De-regulation took care of the rest of the companies!

I would like to see a "real communication" effort from the IBT.... Something on ... oh, idk...facebook, twitter, whatever!!! the website is not updated, no communication from my local. Damm, even my credit union texts me everyday so I know what my balance is. I would like to make a few suggestions and I know alot of you would too.
Could they put up a initative with technology that would'nt create a revenue stream ( I dont want to buy a coffee mug or sweatshirt hoddie right now)

Then you must have not been on the NEW IBTwebsite this week?.....check it out....KK
 
Heard the weather was bad in Dallas. Is the meeting going to take place today?

There was a problem for some IBT reps getting into Dallas, haven't heard if the meeting will still take place. They might tie the metting together with a conference call.

Stay tuned.

Yes...I was on that page before TB today and I did sign up, I follow the @teamsters, I like em on FB and even seen the youtube stuff, my union president has my cell and email, I go to ***************, drive on together.... I was outside earlier and scanned the horizion for smoke.... If it will help me communicate with the 2MAN I will cut open some tea bags or buy tarot cards.... Ironic how much stupid stuff I can get on a smart phone.
It is clear to me that they dont want my input......or give a crap as to what information any of us have, want or need.

But hey , look at the hoodie and coffee mug , just click and buy.... wow that's some communication that easy for them! C what I mean. thats the input they want .
 
With modern technology why is anyone traveling at all. Just another waste of money from both sides

That`s what I say. Ya put the Texan on on a stage, do a simulcast, let him bloviate for half an hour on how this saves jobs and then you have a show of hands on who endorses this deal. I must admit I`m personally way behind the times with technology .But for a large organization, they certainly are in the stone age when it comes to getting information out.
 
Your Local was to hold meetings with YRCW members and let those who came dicuss the issues and to poll the members' on wither to accept OR to deny an extention....if YOUR Local did not do that, then you need to raise hell with YOUR Local.....not the IBT.....KK
 
Jimmy..u need to come back to abf....i will leave a cup of coffee and a plate of left overs on the front pourch..its the house with the yellow porch light on...haha
